Information for Presenters
Thank you for participating in the Graduate and Undergraduate Research Symposium April 11 and 12, 2014, at NCCU. This page will provide you with information regarding the procedures for the presentations.
The schedule for both the oral and poster presentations will be finalized once all abstracts have been reviewed. Please contact your research mentor or advisor if you have any questions about your presentation.
The oral presentations will be 10 minutes in length, with an additional two minutes for questions.
